Loft Conversion Showers: Fitting an Enclosure Under a Sloping Ceiling

 

In recent years, bathroom loft conversions have become an increasingly popular way to add extra space and value to the home.  However, it can be a tricky process to install a shower enclosure in an attic bathroom because of the sloping angles and limited ceiling height. 

We are authorised UK retailers of several shower brands that offer bespoke shower doors. Typically there are 2 main types - reduced height, and angled cuts. Reduced height doors aren't that much more expensive than a standard shower door. Angled glass doors are an excellent solution in certain installation, but they do tend to cost a little more. We'd be happy to give you an idea of options and costs - just get in touch.

Bespoke Shower Enclosures

The average shower enclosure measures about 2 metres in height including tray, so naturally if you have a lot of sloping ceilings in the corners of your loft or attic, this limits the places in which you can situate your shower enclosure. Many people compromise by squeezing in a tiny enclosure and losing the chance of using all the wasted space under the eaves.

 

The problem can be overcome by installing a bespoke shower enclosure that has been manufactured to meet the precise angles and height of your ceiling.

The end result is a beautifully stylish shower enclosure that actually makes the most out of the space in your bathroom and is individually tailored to your room.

Bespoke enclosures are often not as expensive as you think. Simpsons, for example, do bespoke versions of many of their enclosure ranges with prices starting at the mid hundreds. We also supply bespoke shower enclosures from brands such as Arcade, Burlington, Simpsons and various others.

At Drench, we've supplied hundreds of bespoke-sized shower doors and enclosures all over the UK. Our experience with a large number of different brands all doing pretty much the same thing means we can offer impartial, unbiased advice about which options offers you the best value for money.

    Please can you give me a very rough idea how much a 800mm glass door with a corner but out for a sloping ceiling would be. If the rough cost is within our scope I can send you the measurements for a proper quote.

    Thanks!

    We have a wet room installed on our attic , which is working well apart from the spread and pooling of water . We were wondering if a glass screen could be sealed at the tiles to limit water spread and have a pivot to move it out of the way when not in use .

    Hello,

    I am looking for a shower enclosure for out new loft bathroom. The tray size is 1400 x 900. It has one fixed wall to the side 1700 high. Could you give me some idea of cost for the 2 sided enclosure with door at the front, both sides 1700 high but in the centre at the front the bottom of the shower spout is 1920 approx. So I presume it would also need angled cuts. If I could have a rough idea of cost and time scale. It would be much appreciated. Regards Louise

    I am interested in this design idea! How do you plan the shower area? Should one fit the maximum size shower tray as the foot print?

    Hello

    I need a shower door with 700mm width and 1700mm height for a bathroom loft conversion. I would be grateful if you could email me with a price for a bifold door in this size.

    Thanks, Anita

    Hi there,

    I need a bath screen that is suitable for a sloped ceiling. The bath to the lowest part of ceiling is 125cm and to highest is approx 156cm the difference is the slope and would probably want the length along the bath to be between 50-70cm, could you possibly quote please?

    thanks

    Hi.
    I would like a quote for a shower enclosure for my bathroom, which had a sloped ceiling. I can email a diagram of measurements but roughly it's 1000mm at the bottom, full door height (1950mm or more) on the left side, down to 1700mm on the right and 740mm at the top sloping down to the right. Hope this makes sense,as I said can send a diagram if needed but a rough price would be good for now. Thanks

    Please can you give me a rough estimate on how much a thin glass door with the corner cut out for a sloping ceiling would be (under a staircase). We would also need a frame to ensure that the weight of the glass is properly supported.

    Hi. We are about to start a renovation project. We want to put a 1700mm rectangular shower tray under a sloping roof. The shower will need a door (full height door with angled bit continuing the slope). The shower glass will need to continue the angled bit.
    I have two questions, I) roughly how much would this cost and ii) what is the lead time from sending you the design to delivery.
    Thank you
    Jonathan

    Could you give me an idea of the cost for a shower door for a recess in a loft under a slope. The width of the tray is 1m, and we need a door for 700mm of this plus an angled panel for the remaining 300mm. Would the door need to be pivoted, or could it be bifold? Ideally the glass would be as frameless as possible,

    Many thanks!
